When God isn’t a Fluffy Bunny with Professor Matt Henry: Does God place us in painful situations for His glory? Does God “punish” the innocent? Does the difference between saying “God allows evil” and “God causes evil” change how you feel when you’re hurting? How do we respond to life when we are not sure of, or are not happy with the answers we imagine for these questions? Are we even allowed to ask these questions in our churches, families, friend groups, or in our own hearts? This group is exploring these questions and more as we read through various passages of Scripture and wrestle with our understanding of God’s actions in the world. Monday nights from 4-5:05 pm in The Underground. All are welcome. Contact Professor Henry () for more information.
